On August 17, 2017, Microsoft tweeted that Xbox One X pre-order details will be announced at Gamescom 2017 on 20th August, at precisely 12 PM Pacific Time. The One X is the competitor to Sony’s PS4 Pro and is a much more powerful version of the Xbox One, boasting the ability to run games at native 4K resolution and a lot more. The premium console will cost $500 at launch, but now images have surfaced of the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition.
From what we know, the Project Scorpio Edition is the prized limited edition of the Xbox One X. The console has a taller, more appealing look and comes with its own vertical mounting stand, similar to the PS4 Pro.
The Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition has a different body compared to the regular Xbox One X. The console has ‘Project Scorpio’ written on the front, which is also written vertically between the console’s controller’s D-Pad and right analogue stick. Another interesting difference is the woven texture, or the surface brushing on the console’s side giving it a better, different feel. The will reportedly come with 1TB of built-in data storage.
Talking about the Xbox One X, a German website called mediamarkt.de has reportedly listed pre-orders for the Xbox One X earlier today. A similar leak also occurred earlier on German Amazon, when the ‘Xbox One X Day One Edition’ was listed but was then removed. If these leaks are anything to go by, then expect pre-orders to be up for the console soon.
According to some rumors, pre-orders for the Xbox One X and the Project Scorpio Edition will be available as soon Gamescom is over and Microsoft has unveiled the Project Scorpio Edition as well as the Vanilla edition of its premium console. The console, dubbed the worlds ‘most powerful console’, boasts 12GB GDDR5 VRAM, memory bandwidth of 326 GB/second and an 8 core AMD CPU running at 2.3 GHz.
